OLD LIBERTY BELL IN ROCK ISLAND FOR HALF AN HOUR
Given Enthusiastic Welcome by Ten Thousand People on Its Route to
Be Exhibited at the World's Fair.
- - - - Kr ' ffs J
A crowd of several thousand people
were assembled at the fool of Seven
teenth street this afternoon to see
liberty bell when it stopped half an
hour on its way to the St. Louis fair.
The Special train on the Milwaukee.
on which it came, was over two hours
late owing to the crush of people at
cities north of here t gee the precious
old relic. At Dubuque. Associated
Press reports state, the crush was so
great this morninp that several per
sons were injured.
Welcomed With Whistles.
A company of citizens headed by II.
i). Mack. Henry Curse and F. G.
Votinp, made arrangements for the
iroper reception of the bell, and en-
paped Bleuer's band. and. havinp in
augurated a display of patriotism ov-
r the entire city as shown by tin
nany flaps Buttering out in the
breeze, an immense throng of people
ongregated to sec the historic
elic. Upon Ihe arrival of the train
the band struck up the selection, "Lil-
rty Hell." and at its departure "My
ountry "I'is of Thee" was played.
As the train came over the Crescent
iridpe from the Davenport side the
.vhistles of the Bock Island Plow
rorks ami the lower mills chimed a
dtorus of welcome which was echoed
y the waterworks whistle up town
ind the signal was soon taken up b.v
he locomotives in the yards and tin
mats in the harbor. Ten thousand
eople. assembled about the Milwau
vce station at the foot of Seventeenth,
joined m a lovous snout oi welcome
is the train reached the depot.
When the- train drew up to the sta
ion Mayor John Weaver, f Phila
lelphia, stepped to the side of the car
ii front of the bell and introduced
'ouncilman J. B. C. McAllister, who
poke for a few minutes in an enthua
"1 and patriotic spirit, referring to
he entry of the bell into ihe state of
lllnois at this point. Cheer after
dicer were accorded him b) the surg
1 1 j- and caper crowd which had path
tred around the car. The speaker
aid tribute to the spirit manifested
y the people all over the country
din had BSSemblcd to see the tropin
f liberty. 11c- stated that George
Washington had pa zed upon the beb
is the people are now doing while it
i on its itinerary.
Placing his hand upon the bell, the
maker said that the sivners of the
Jeclaration of independence had done
the same thiup. The bell was likened
to the life off the people, it being pict
ured as the emblem of liberty, that
nost of all cherished right b the
Vmerican people. The prosperity of
l.c- glorious United Stales was touch
ed upon in laudatory terms. The hos
italitv of the people of the country
through which Ihe train had passed:
heir warm spirit of patriotism; the
greatness of the states, and like- sen
timents, were expressed. He showed
how at one time this nation had onl.v

guage he told r its rapid r. wtli t
IS slates. Before closing, Ihe speaker
asked that the crowd in wav of giving
expression "f their feeling give thre e

Under the schedule arranged at Phil

which provided for no stop between

in accordance with the printed ar
ranpement. but there were so many
people at the platform.- at the towns
along the wav. including the one
across the river, that delay was un
avoidable, with the cor.-cquence that
the train was two hours late pulling
into Rock Island.
